I have originally planned to drive with my family (wife, 12-year-old daughter, and two senior citizens) to Seattle on Dec.20-25 but decided to consider changing the dates to Nov. 24-29 (thanksgiving week) to avoid the possibility of a storm while on the Siskiyou Mountain Pass.
1. Should I at all be worried about the possibility of a storm in Siskiyou this year around Dec. 20?
2. I've read that it can still snow as early as Thanksgiving week in the mountain pass making Thanksgiving week and Christmas week basically the same in terms of difficulty in driving?
3. Are there any Thanksgiving driving/safety trends I should know about?
I've only done one road trip (San Diego to Big Sur to SFO) and I haven't driven in the snow yet.
I appreciate everyone's input!
